I'm not the one with the gluten issues. But I don't usually eat a big breakfast. Today I had cottage cheese and toast. Sometimes I had cereal. Yesterday I had an upset stomach so just plain rice. Sometimes I have polenta with tomato sauce.

Daughter is the one with gluten issues. She doesn't much like breakfast. Lately she has been eating apples and carrots. Once in a while I'll make bacon and we'll both have that.

Monday - Friday it's a quick bowl of Chex with 2% milk. And coffee of course (with Truvia).

Weekends might be either buttered toasted Udi's bread, or toasted Udi's bagel, with jam or agave syrup. And perhaps eggs & bacon. Or breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, and homemade salsa.

best regards, lm

I had to leave dairy and eggs so that limited my breakfasts.

Lately it's these cookies for breakfast or you could call em grainless granola bars if ya want. ;)

It is just perfect to grab two big cookies and a cup of coffee and head out the door.

If you can have nuts that is.

Nutty Cookies (Adapted from Elana's Pantry Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe)

1 cup Grapeseed oil

1 cup Agave syrup

1 T. Vanilla

5 cups Almond flour

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Baking soda

Bunch of Walnuts

Bunch of Cashews

I add as many walnuts and cashews as the batter will hold. I mound them up on a cookie sheet and bake until done. 325 bout 10-12 min.

Hmm I might try baking them as a bar. Never thought of it til now.

My latest breakfasts are smoothies. I put the following in a blender. Yogurt (vanilla or something I like) banana, strawberries or any other fruit I like (Kiwi, blueberries etc.) Then a good handful of spinach. If you use bananas you don't taste the spinach at all and it helps with staying full. Blend - and it's yummy. (My kids haven't figured out why it's green yet!) I drink on the way to work.

I do spinach smoothies too! When I give it to my little ones, I call it swamp juice (think Shrek) and they love it. (It's all in the name -- broccoli is called dinosaur trees at my house.) They love peanut butter smoothies too: peanut butter, bananas, rice (or soy) milk, vanilla yogurt, ice cubes and a little Stevia or agave nectar. Don't put in too much peanut butter though or it will be too... peanut buttery.

I'd like to thank everyone for responding. There are some fantastic ideas here, especially those I can make ahead. I will come back to this again and again.

I have to eat breakfast every day or I starve until lunch. I eat 2 eggs, whisked together in a bowl and then nuked in one of those egg poacher-style containers. Usually I add some lean ham (pre-cooked) and mustard on gluten-free, dairy-free bread. That gives me protein, fat, and carbs. I find with the combo, I easily stay full until lunch.

What I like to call "breakfast rice". I hate rice pudding as a dessert, but I often make a form of it for breakfast. Take leftover rice. Mix in milk and/or yogurt of choice. Add cinnamon, dried fruit, nuts. I often make up a big batch at the beginning of the week and put a serving in a small container and eat it when I get to work. Works great with quinoa too. You can also mix in flax or chia meal if you want extra fibre (if you're like me and C is your problem and not D!)

Crustless mini quiches are pretty easy to make and you can pop a couple out every day to heat up.  I don't have a recipe on hand, but easy to find online.

Eggs, nearly every morning. 

 

I sometimes make buckwheat banana pancakes with apple cider instead of milk or water. Soooo good.

 

Scrambled eggs with onion is standard. Sometimes I melt Daiya in them (cheese substitute), sometimes hot sauce, sometimes ketchup, sometimes mushrooms, peppers and/or tomato (I would have tomato more but partner hates it), curry them sometimes with ground and fresh coriander and cumin. Fried in olive oil or coconut oil or leftover grease from some meat I've had recently. 

 

I would eat bacon regularly but since I moved and I cannot find a source of it where the preservatives in it don't give me a rash. I recently found some gluten-free turkey sausages at Costco; 2 boxes were gone in less than a week and no itchy rash!

This morning I ate the last piece of chess pie (gluten-free crust, of course) with a cup of coffee. Monday, it's back to the gym!

    • I've still got slow transit time, and have to work pretty hard to be regular. My last colonoscopy my doc complained about things not being very cleaned out. I had a horrible time with the prep. Thought everyone did till I spoke to my husband about his experience, and he's had a bunch of them. I have my big 50 colonoscopy coming up in December... any tips or tricks on making the prep more pleasant or work better so the doc doesn't yell at me again? (He almost stopped the procedure. I was pretty out of it but I do remember the angry tone of his voice.)
    • One of the toughest things about purging gluten from your diet is the change in taste you'll undoubtedly experience. Since gluten-free breads are baked without the benefit of the almost magical baking properties of gluten, finding a practical – and tasty – substitute can certainly be ae a challenge.

    • Your spleen is on your left side, and is part of your lymphatic system (deals with fighting infections etc.). So not surprising or unreasonable for there to be some pain here due to swelling in response to gluten exposure. I also get this as well. When I first starting having severe symptoms, I actually thought I had mono because of this. Now I only get it if glutened. As a side tip, I'd say avoid any pizza from a restaurant, even if they proclaim it to be gluten-free. All of their toppings, sauces and surfaces are likely highly contaminated from making and preparing the regular pizza bases. Hope you feel better!
    • Omg that sounds divine! Thank you!
    • @Jmg For sure. I think whatever one's consensus is on the validity of gluten causing problems for those diagnosed with NCGS, one has to admit that these people do have a real problem, even if it's one we don't fully understand. Articles like this do a disservice to that fact, which as you say is nuanced. There are also other autoimmune diseases that seem to respond to the GFD for reasons that we don't understand either. It's also problematic as from reading that one-line asterisk on celiac disease, people come down very hard on people who lack a formal diagnosis, not realizing that this is the majority of those with celiac disease. I'm in this camp and so I avoid providing the more nuanced "various doctors I have seen are about 99% sure that I have celiac disease, but I don't have a positive biopsy/blood because the gluten challenge would kill me." If I tell people that I am not taken seriously, despite the fact that many serious medical conditions are diagnosed purely on the basis of described symptoms and response to specific medications for that disease.
